While Reuben Stoby and Rosmond Johnson were securing a repeat of their respective Mourant Ozannes College Classic Series titles, young Sam Potgieter was stealing the show with another record run to close the One Mile Division.

Potgieter lowered the 6 minutes 34.56 seconds time he ran on Oct., 2 to 6:33.87, to wrap up the series unbeaten and claimed the One Mile title.

 Stoby was the overall 2 Miles winner in 11:23.39 while Johnson took the Women's Division in 14:30.69.

 "I came out hoping to run a bit faster and I went out hard and tried to beat the crowd, but on the hills, I slowed a lot," Stoby noted. "I ended up running 11:23, just around my personal best on this course, but I'm not too disappointed though. It's within what I should be running at this time and it's a warm up for the BVI Half Marathon in early December. The series was part of speed work and this week I only did long runs, so, I'm very happy for today's run."

 Johnson said her plan was to win the final race. "I had been doing a little speed training and tried to run up hills a little," she said. "I made up my mind this morning that I'm not going to lose today. I did two races and missed one when I went away on holidays. I won the first one and this is my second victory, which made me the series overall winner."

 Zebalon McLean who ran in the first College Classic Series race on Oct. 19, 1996, has only missed seven races and has participated in the series for 20 of it's 21 years of existence. "I'm glad to see that is has been carried-not by athletes-but by regular people who comes out for the exercise," he said. "I think the one unique thing about the College Classic Series is that it offers something for everyone, walkers, runners, joggers-even people who are not interested in running would come out because you have this camaraderie and you have the company of other people to pull you along."
